Serves 2 (serving size: 5 chicken drumettes)

Chicken wing drumettes (the upper part of the wing) are a smart choice for air frying—their small size means you don’t have to spend all day cooking endless batches.

Traditional drumettes require tons of oil to guarantee maximum crispy goodness; this genius recipe gets it done with just a tablespoon of super-flavorful sesame oil. To get them extra crispy, give the drumettes a turn during cooking. Serve these Asian-inspired wings over brown rice, or double the recipe and serve as an appetizer.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place chicken in single layer in air fryer basket; coat well with cooking spray. Cook at 400°F until skin is very crispy, 30 minutes, turning drumettes over halfway through cooking.

Step 2

Meanwhile, stir together vinegar, honey, stock, soy sauce, oil, crushed red pepper, and garlic in a small skillet. Bring to a simmer over medium-high; cook until slightly thickened and almost syrupy, 6 minutes. Place drumettes in a medium bowl. Add honey mixture, and toss to coat. Sprinkle with peanuts and chives.
